Currently Reading



Currently reading: Religion on the Rise by Murad Wilfried Hofmann

I was attempting to voice-record my reading, but I realized I was having problems with accent and in making mistakes with reading the words (my eyesight issues). I really need to have my glasses soon. Perhaps, if I will have time, I will get them this afternoon or tomorrow, in sha Allah. My optician is a good friend of mine. :)

Anyways, I recommend the book. It is an insightful work that touches into the issues that Islam and Muslims face in the modern world, and what Islam has to offer: its solutions to the problems of the current times, and what its future likely holds, most especially in the postmodernism era.
